Estoy ampliando el artículo Hispanic para mostrar que los "hispanos" no son solo los "latinos" de los estados unidos sino mucha más gente; de hecho, otra gente. He creado una sección específica para hablar sobre la historia de Hispania y también para hablar sobre las gentes modernas que la pueblan hoy. En este apartado precisamente, hay una sección para los gallegos: Quizá querráis contribuir rellenando dicha sección. Onofre Bouvila 16:53, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

Stub templatesEdit

All the newly-created stub templates for this WikiProject have been taken to WP:SFD. None of them were cleared with WP:WSS/P prior to creation - as the WikiProject boilerplate template states they should be - and none of them meet the required level of stub population for creation. What's more, several of them do not conform to the standard stub hierarchy, one has an incorrectly-formed category name, one has been speedy-deleted as being so malformed as to be useless, and another is potentially speediable as the re-creation of a previously deleted template. Grutness...wha? 03:09, 3 December 2005 (UTC)

Flag of GaliciaEdit

Hey there. I have used the spanish article, and other external references as Xunta, which says the same thing, to create the english article of the Flag of Galicia. I will checkup on it again, but if any one finds any mistakes or could expand it much better, also it's a stub now. Hey Stoni I copied your signature, hope you don't mind.

History of GaliciaEdit

Hi there, I'm really tired so this will be just a tiny report.

I've been working on the History of Galicia project and these are the changes I've been made:


  • History of Galicia's article
  • Celtic Gallaecia


  • Uploaded a Megalithical Structure's image
    • CasotaFrean.jpg
  • Uploaded a Castro's image:
    • Image:Galice castro.jpg
  • Uploaded 2 maps for the article Gallaecia.
    • Image:Hispania1.jpg
    • Image:Hispania2.JPG
  • Uploaded 1 map for the article History of Galicia.
    • Image:Caminosantiago.jpg

And just a tiny modification on Template:History of Galicia. Jfreyre 20:41, 28 December 2005 (UTC)

Link ProblemEdit

I notice that there is a problem with a link in the city infoboxes used on most galician municipality pages. See Talk:Km² m² for more info. Lasunncty 20:19, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

This has been fixed for all municipalities - a default entry of Km² in the area magnitude box caused the mediawiki s/w to create an invalid link - This has now been removed and where area figures are available the correct order of magnitude has been added ( 1 E6, 1 E7 or 1 E8) Cj tyche 17:38, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

Valga in Pontevedra ProvinceEdit

The link to Valga is for a town in Estonia - Pontevedra_province template link to Valdra changed to Valga, Galicia - This will need an entry - You may want to consider moving the Pontevedra_province template back to the project page as a prompt for this Cj tyche 19:26, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

Project directoryEdit

Hello. The WikiProject Council has recently updated the Wikipedia:WikiProject Council/Directory. This new directory includes a variety of categories and subcategories which will, with luck, potentially draw new members to the projects who are interested in those specific subjects. Please review the directory and make any changes to the entries for your project that you see fit. There is also a directory of portals, at User:B2T2/Portal, listing all the existing portals. Feel free to add any of them to the portals or comments section of your entries in the directory. The three columns regarding assessment, peer review, and collaboration are included in the directory for both the use of the projects themselves and for that of others. Having such departments will allow a project to more quickly and easily identify its most important articles and its articles in greatest need of improvement. If you have not already done so, please consider whether your project would benefit from having departments which deal in these matters. It is my hope that all the changes to the directory can be finished by the first of next month. Please feel free to make any changes you see fit to the entries for your project before then. If you should have any questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you. B2T2 17:23, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia Day AwardsEdit

Hello, all. It was initially my hope to try to have this done as part of Esperanza's proposal for an appreciation week to end on Wikipedia Day, January 15. However, several people have once again proposed the entirety of Esperanza for deletion, so that might not work. It was the intention of the Appreciation Week proposal to set aside a given time when the various individuals who have made significant, valuable contributions to the encyclopedia would be recognized and honored. I believe that, with some effort, this could still be done. My proposal is to, with luck, try to organize the various WikiProjects and other entities of wikipedia to take part in a larger celebrartion of its contributors to take place in January, probably beginning January 15, 2007. I have created yet another new subpage for myself (a weakness of mine, I'm afraid) at User talk:Badbilltucker/Appreciation Week where I would greatly appreciate any indications from the members of this project as to whether and how they might be willing and/or able to assist in recognizing the contributions of our editors. Thank you for your attention. Badbilltucker 21:29, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Comment on the WikiProject X proposalEdit

Hello there! As you may already know, most WikiProjects here on Wikipedia struggle to stay active after they've been founded. I believe there is a lot of potential for WikiProjects to facilitate collaboration across subject areas, so I have submitted a grant proposal with the Wikimedia Foundation for the "WikiProject X" project. WikiProject X will study what makes WikiProjects succeed in retaining editors and then design a prototype WikiProject system that will recruit contributors to WikiProjects and help them run effectively. Please review the proposal here and leave feedback. If you have any questions, you can ask on the proposal page or leave a message on my talk page. Thank you for your time! (Also, sorry about the posting mistake earlier. If someone already moved my message to the talk page, feel free to remove this posting.) Harej (talk) 22:47, 1 October 2014 (UTC)

"Galician Blond"Edit

WikiProject X is live!Edit

Hello everyone!

You may have received a message from me earlier asking you to comment on my WikiProject X proposal. The good news is that WikiProject X is now live! In our first phase, we are focusing on research. At this time, we are looking for people to share their experiences with WikiProjects: good, bad, or neutral. We are also looking for WikiProjects that may be interested in trying out new tools and layouts that will make participating easier and projects easier to maintain. If you or your WikiProject are interested, check us out! Note that this is an opt-in program; no WikiProject will be required to change anything against its wishes. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Note: To receive additional notifications about WikiProject X on this talk page, please add this page to Wikipedia:WikiProject X/Newsletter. Otherwise, this will be the last notification sent about WikiProject X.

Translation help with reference for animated short filmEdit

I'm currently in the process of creating an article in my sandbox for an animated short film, called Le Building. While the film itself is French, I've happened across a source that, according to Google Translate, is written in Galician. The source is a magazine, which has been uploaded here. [1]. It appears that the magazine is simply stating basic facts, such as the names of crew members and the plot synopsis. So what I'm actually seeking help with is the previous page [2]. I'd like to know the context of how the film is mentioned in this magazine. I don't necessarily need anyone to translate the entirety of page 164, but I'd like to get the gist of what's being said. Is anyone able to help? Thanks. --Jpcase (talk) 21:11, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

WikiProject collaboration notice from the Portals WikiProjectEdit

The reason I am contacting you is because there are one or more portals that fall under this subject, and the Portals WikiProject is currently undertaking a major drive to automate portals that may affect them.

Portals are being redesigned.

The new design features are being applied to existing portals.

At present, we are gearing up for a maintenance pass of portals in which the introduction section will be upgraded to no longer need a subpage. In place of static copied and pasted excerpts will be self-updating excerpts displayed through selective transclusion, using the template {{Transclude lead excerpt}}.

The discussion about this can be found here.

Maintainers of specific portals are encouraged to sign up as project members here, noting the portals they maintain, so that those portals are skipped by the maintenance pass. Currently, we are interested in upgrading neglected and abandoned portals. There will be opportunity for maintained portals to opt-in later, or the portal maintainers can handle upgrading (the portals they maintain) personally at any time.


On April 8th, 2018, an RfC ("Request for comment") proposal was made to eliminate all portals and the portal namespace. On April 17th, the Portals WikiProject was rebooted to handle the revitalization of the portal system. On May 12th, the RfC was closed with the result to keep portals, by a margin of about 2 to 1 in favor of keeping portals.

There's an article in the current edition of the Signpost interviewing project members about the RfC and the Portals WikiProject.

Since the reboot, the Portals WikiProject has been busy building tools and components to upgrade portals.

So far, 84 editors have joined.

If you would like to keep abreast of what is happening with portals, see the newsletter archive.

If you have any questions about what is happening with portals or the Portals WikiProject, please post them on the WikiProject's talk page.

Thank you.    — The Transhumanist   07:39, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

User script to detect unreliable sourcesEdit

I have (with the help of others) made a small user script to detect and highlight various links to unreliable sources and predatory journals. Some of you may already be familiar with it, given it is currently the 39th most imported script on Wikipedia. The idea is that it takes something like

  • John Smith "Article of things" Accessed 2020-02-14. (John Smith "[ Article of things]" ''''. Accessed 2020-02-14.)

and turns it into something like

It will work on a variety of links, including those from {{cite web}}, {{cite journal}} and {{doi}}.

The script is mostly based on WP:RSPSOURCES, WP:NPPSG and WP:CITEWATCH and a good dose of common sense. I'm always expanding coverage and tweaking the script's logic, so general feedback and suggestions to expand coverage to other unreliable sources are always welcomed.

Do note that this is not a script to be mindlessly used, and several caveats apply. Details and instructions are available at User:Headbomb/unreliable. Questions, comments and requests can be made at User talk:Headbomb/unreliable.
